biography

Marie Losier (b.France,1972), studied literature at the University of Nanterre (France, BA, 1995) and Fine Arts at Hunter College, City University of New York (MFA, 2003). She has made a number of film portraits on avant-garde directors, musicians and composers, such as the Kuchar brothers, Guy Maddin, Richard Foreman, Tony Conrad, Genesis P-Orridge, Alan Vega, Peter Hristoff and Felix Kubin. Whimsical, poetic, dreamlike and unconventional, her films explore the life and work of these artists.

Losier’s films are regularly shown at prestigious venues such as The Cannes Film Festival, The Berlinale, The Rotterdam Film Festival, IDFA, The Tate Modern, MoMA, Le Palais de Tokyo, Le Centre Georges Pompidou and La Cinémathèque Francaise. She was included in the 2006 Whitney Biennial (Whitney Museum, N.Y.C).

Losier’s first feature film was a portrait of pioneering musician-artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV) and their partner Lady Jaye. The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2011, winning the Caligary and the Teddy Awards. She also won the Grand Prize at Indielisboa, the Prix Louis Marcorelles and the Prix des Bibliothèques at Cinéma du Réel; the film was released in France, Canada, Mexico, Germany and in the USA.

In 2013/14 Losier was awarded the prestigious DAAD Residency Award in Berlin and the Guggenheim Award to work on her new feature film Cassandro The Exotico!, a portraitof the celebrated Mexican wrestler Saul Almendariz. She is currently an artist-in-residence at La Cité des Arts, Paris and her feature film Cassandro The Exotico! premiered at The Cannes Film Festival in May of 2018. It was released in France in December 2018 and will be in theaters in the US, opening at the Metrograph NYC in the summer of 2019.
In 2018, MoMA presented her entire work up to that point in a retrospective and acquired several of her films for its permanent collection.
Marie Losier also had a solo exhibition at the BBB Contemporary Art Gallery in Toulouse during their Spring Festival in September 2018 and curated an exhibition in collaboration with Eric Mangion and Pauline Curnier-Jardin at the Ricard Foundation Paris in May 2019.
That same year, her cinematographic work was honored by two large retrospectives at the Festival d’Automne as well as the Jeu de Paume in Paris and received praise by the Athens Cinematheque.
For 2022 Marie Losier’s work will be shown at the Brussels Cinematheque.
